5.0 out of 5 stars The mother of philosophical dictionaries 17 Oct 2000
Format:Paperback
As an advanced level philosophy student i have found this dictionary not only to be all encompassing but also to explain with the simplicity required of writers in philosophy. The book covers an immense spectrum of philosophical perspectives and does not require a Ph.D to understand. All praise be to Robert Audi and the compilers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Dictionary of Philosophy 7 Mar 2010
By N. ruiz
Format:Paperback
This dictionary is a very valuable academic source. It has definitions of main philosophical terms from the different philosophers or schools and at the end each word it directs you to other words related. It can be tricky at the beginning, if you must, but it is very easy once you give it a chance. As stated before, it is a must if you are doing research or studying philosophy.

3.0 out of 5 stars An encyclopedia not a dictionary 12 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this weighty tome to assist my adventures into the mysteries of philosophy but have been frustrated by the frequent cross-referencing of needed words. This is especially irritating when the cross reference is to a lengthy entry that requires protracted and careful reading to find the meaning being sought. As a dictionary I find it a disappointing. When more detail and background is needed the entries can be very helpful so as a one volume encyclopedia yes, but dictionary no.
